Charity: International Children's Ostomy Educational Foundation - UK
ICOEF UK offers personalised puppets to children with bowel and bladder disorders. Each 15" puppet is customized with the same condition as their new owner. The child has a stoma - then the puppet has a stoma etc. This has the effect of teaching the child how to look after their bodies without the need to hurt themselves. It also gives the child confidence in talking to the puppet with any problems that they might get medically. To help the nursing staff we provide a 30" puppets complete with medical procedures for use in surgeries and hospitals. See our website for more details.
